The Livestock Exporter Young Achiever of the Year 2021

“Nutrien Ag Solutions is pleased to continue our partnership with the Australian Livestock Exporters’ Council (ALEC). Collaboration is at the core of ALEC’s work, and we are excited to continue to work together to secure this important industry’s standing with the Australian public.


These past 18 months have been challenging both domestically and internationally with impacts from Covid-19 felt around the globe. We have seen the Australian live export industry made an essential service in order to continue to support our producers and to provide much needed food security to our international partners.


Nutrien Ag Solutions looks forward to seeing the calibre of the 2021 nominations. I personally encourage those working within the live export supply chain to nominate members of their team who show outstanding potential and are committed to best practice and the industry's long term sustainability."
